Pedri featured in a league game for the first time since August.
Barcelona entered the international break with consecutive La Liga wins. Barca earned valuable three points against Alaves in a hard-fought victory.
Robert Lewandowski’s late double helped La Blaugrana remain in third place this weekend. They are still four points behind league leaders Girona. They also sealed their place in the Champions League last 16.
Pedri is back in the squad after the injury and he will be ready to maintain the winning run for Barcelona. The 20-year-old featured in a league game for the first time since August.
He said after the game via Marca, “Whenever you win, you are happy. It was a hard game, up against a difficult opponent.
“When you start losing, as happened to us several times this season, you have to row against the tide. We have to continue like this, adding wins to wins.
“In the first half, I wasn’t comfortable, I lost a lot of possession. I need to get up to the right rhythm and in the second half, I was tired.”
